The triennial began in 1991 on the fifth anniversary of the nuclear disaster in the fourth block of Chernobyl. Oleg Veklenko, the primary organiser, was affected by his tour as a reservist mobilised to assist in recovery from the disaster and felt the weight of moral responsibility against the threat of future technological catastrophes and environmental pollution. Designers and printmakers from 54 countries responded to the invitation and their work was exhibited at Kharviv Art Museum on 26 April 1991 - exactly five years after the explosion.
